Our Deluxe Waterstones are fired from aluminum oxide abrasive carefully screened for consistent size mixed into a clay matrix. Their size is 8-1/8˝ x 2- 5/8˝ x 1- 3/8˝. They are manufactured to create a porous, friable surface. This is important since, as the blade is rubbed on the stone, the particles of abrasive become rounded and dulled. The waterstones' porous, friable nature keeps fresh, sharp abrasive constantly exposed on the surface, thus accelerating and optimizing the cutting effect. We offer two classes of stone: coarse and finishing. The coarse stones are 250, 800, 1000, and 1200 grit. The 250 and 800 grit are faster cutting and used for repairing nicked edges or reshaping a bevel. The 1000 or 1200 grit stones are used for the first stage of the actual sharpening. Japanese water stones are softer than Western styles causing a fresh, sharp surface to be continually exposed to the tool edge. Full instructions for care and use are included with each stone.

    The best 1,000 grit stone for the money, by far.

    I own 8 or 9 quality Japanese Waterstones for sharpening my Japanese chef knives and in the 1,000 -1,200 grit range this is by far the best stone that I have. I have other stones in this grit range that I paid 2-3 times what I paid for the King 1200 but this stone has the best feedback, cutting action and creates the nicest slurry. Its much better than the King 1000 and I don't know why but it is. Buy this 1200 stone and you won't be sorry. In reality, you only need the 1200 and the King 6000 and you are good to go. I have stones that go from 400 up to 8000 grit but you really don't need them all. Add a balsa or a leather strop with some fine honing compound and you have it all to get your knives or tools razor sharp.
